The Fitchburg Star, a suburban newspaper that ceased print publication in 2009, is doing the unthinkable in this online age — returning to print.

The comeback has an unusual twist. City officials will help relaunch the newspaper in March by spending more than $30,000 of taxpayer money this year to mail the monthly publication free to all 12,600 residences and businesses in Fitchburg, a suburb just south of Madison.
